Mark Ramprakash returns to Middlesex as short-term batting coach

He first represented the county aged 17

Mark Ramprakash has returned to his first club Middlesex as a short-term batting coach over the winter.

Ramprakash left his role as England’s national lead batting coach in 2019 and will now rejoin the county he first represented as a 17-year-old.

The 52-year-old spent 14 seasons at Lord’s before departing for Surrey and worked on the coaching staff between 2012 and 2014.

“I am delighted to have been asked to wear the three Seaxes again and support the Middlesex players and staff in their winter programme,” said the former Test batter.

“They are a talented bunch and I look forward to helping them in their journey to be the best they can be and achieve their potential.”

Interim head coach Alan Coleman, who recently stepped in following Stuart Law’s departure, added: “I’m delighted to be able to welcome Ramps back to the club to help our batting group over the winter months.

“His knowledge of batting at Lord’s will be invaluable, and I’m certain his energy and love of the game will rub off on our group. It will be a pleasure for us all to work with him, and I can’t wait to see him in action.”
